A record number of Syrians have been allowed to come to the United States because of the refugee crisis, but the people we are letting in are not the ones that Obama said would be welcome.

So far this month, 499 refugees from Syria are now living in America. Of the 499, all but four declare themselves Sunni Muslims. Ironically Sunni Muslims are killing anyone who leaves Fallujah in Iraq right now.

Of the four who are not Sunni, the remainder say they are simply “Muslim”.

Of the 2,235 Syrian refugees, the United States has only let in ten Christians. That is less than a half of a percent. Christians once made up 10% of the Syrian population before the civil war.

Obama said that most of the refugees would be women and children, but they are not releasing the stats to back it up. The complete demographics have not been released.

The record so far this month is the start of a new trend. The number of refugees in March was the highest admitted in the US until April. Then in April was saw the highest numbers in refugees. And now a new record in May.

Will this trend continue? Probably.

Believe it or not, the Obama Administration is under fire from pro-refugee watchdog groups for moving too slow and not bringing in enough refugees.

It is clear that something has to be done to help the innocents in Syria, but will us letting in refugees actually make us less safe? Let us know in the comments below.

European Parliament President admits that Christians are ‘Not Safe in Our Continent’.

Someone is finally raising the alarm that Christians are at risk of genocide at the hands of radical Islam – that according to a high-level meeting on religious persecution in Brussels following the horrific series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris that took the lives of 130 people last month and sent the continent into lockdown.

According to President of the European Parliament (EP) Martin Schulz, Europe can no longer afford to ignore the fate of Christians who are “clearly the most persecuted group” in the world adding that Christian persecution is “undervalued”, does not receive enough attention and “hasn’t been properly addressed” in the West.

EP Vice President Antonio Tajani added that Europe has succumbed to “the temptation of thinking we can ignore this task” saying Western powers must do more to protect Christians throughout the world who are suffering persecution for their faith. According to Dr. Thomas D. Williams writing for Breitbart News:

“Speakers cited the work of Open Doors, a human rights organization that monitors the persecution of Christians, noting that 150 million Christians worldwide suffer torture, rape, and arbitrary imprisonment. Christians in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, North Korea and Nigeria are among those hardest hit.”

A 2015 World Watch List report published by Open Doors found that:

“Islamic extremism is by far the most significant persecution engine” of Christians in the world today and that “40 of the 50 countries on the World Watch List are affected by this kind of persecution.”

Williams reported that Tajani said Islamists consider Christians:

“…”crusaders” of Europe and because of Islamic persecution in the Middle East more than 70 percent of Christians have fled Iraq since 2003, with another 700 thousand Christians who have been forced to leave their home in Syria since the outbreak of civil war.

“Each month 200 churches and places of worship in the world are attacked and destroyed. Every day and in every region of the world, there are new cases of persecution against Christians…”

“No religious community is as subject to hatred, violence and systematic aggression as the Christians,” Tajani said.

Tajani at once blamed radicalized religion for the problem but that religion can also be the solution.

“In the name of religion, we have an obligation to condemn all those who show contempt for life and kill in the name of God,” he said. “Whoever shoots in the name of God, shoot against God.”

Another meeting attendee, auxiliary bishop Jean Kockerols of Brussels said:

“…the idea that Christians are intruders in certain Muslim-dominated countries must be debunked, since the Christian presence in the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent “dates back to centuries before the spread of the Koran.”

Tajani added that:

“The West must break the silence on the persecution of Christians in the world”… and that “Europe must promote “a model of society in opposition to religious radicalism and brutal and criminal projects, such as creating an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria and then extending its tentacles into to Libya.”

Schulz concluded that the Christian persecution “should shake us up”… and acknowledge, “that on our continent, Christians are not safe.”

While everyone is worried about Syria and Iraq and Putin and refugees and ISIS, let’s take a quick trip to the other side of Iran to see what atrocity is going unnoticed in Pakistan.

ISIS is being scorned for murdering people in the name of Islam, as well they should be, but in the great country of Pakistan you can be executed for the same reason. That’s right. Under Pakistan’s “blasphemy laws” you can be put to death or sentenced to prison for any number of vague reasons concerning the insult of Islam.

The sternest of the punishments comes from, even accidentally, saying something bad about the Prophet Muhammad. You can be executed by the state for that offense. Most people are not actually executed and end up occupying a Pakistani prison for the rest of their lives awaiting an appeal. Prisons in Pakistan are, to say the least, not as nice as American prisons.

There are a host of other ways that you can be charged with any of the violations under the blasphemy laws, because they do not require much proof and they do not make legal provisions that require you to even understand you were doing anything wrong (for the law buffs out there, this would be “mens rea”).

The laws are being used mainly by opportunists who want grab land from religious minorities or those who have grudges against people that would be easy to frame for these “crimes”.

Most of the cases reviewed by international commissions show that over 60% of those charged were falsely accused. Even though there are laws against perjury, none of those who have lied to imprison these people have been brought to justice.

While there are other Muslims who have been wrongfully imprisoned, there exists a gross imbalance of representation of religious minorities when the vast majority of the country of Pakistan identifies as Muslim.

Reports show 633 Muslims as having been charged with crimes that fall under the blasphemy laws, while Christians make up 187. Ahmedis and Hindus are also targets for the unfair application of these laws.

The laws do not seem to be going anywhere. Religious pressure has kept many politicians from speaking out. There are even those who have been assassinated. Salman Taseer, the Punjab governor, who was vocal about being against the laws was killed by his own bodyguard.

There are few in Pakistan who would face the imminent threats to speaking out against these laws. This isn’t a rogue organization. This is the majority.

Europe’s Muslim refugee crisis is getting worse–and Christians are finding themselves in the crosshairs.

Across Europe, the Muslim refugees–which have been pouring across the European border for weeks, as the Middle East spirals into chaos–made their real feelings known.

In Budapest, Hungary, refugees chanted “Allahu Akbar” and “F*** you!” to Christians.

In Austria, others attacked an old lady–apparently grabbing an elderly Italian woman by the hair, pulling her out of her car, so they could steal the car to get to Germany.

In Germany–which announced it would take 500,000 refugees every year for well into the future–the refugees threw feces at Christian bystanders.

And in a migrant camp outside of Milan, refugees rioted over so-called “poor living conditions.”

The list goes on and on–as Christians find themselves increasingly unwelcome in their own countries, due to the heavy flow of refugees.

Worse, there’s a fear that these refugees might include large numbers of terrorists–who could do far greater harm to Europe than nasty chants or feces-throwing.

British politician, Nigel Farage, a conservative, warned that there was a “very genuine fear” that extremists were making their way into Europe. He urged the citizens of the European union to not “allow compassion to imperil [Europe’s] safety.”

Once refugees are in the European Union, they can pass between countries freely. But several eastern European nations like Hungary, which share an international border with non-EU nations, are working hard to secure their borders to stop the flow of migrants.
